Masking credit cards

While I'm able to mask 16 digit numbers I would like a more sophisticated approach as there are some numbers in that range that are not credit card numbers which I don't want to mask, such as error codes. Is anyone utilizing the Luhn Algorithm (http://rosettacode.org/wiki/Luhn_test_of_credit_card_numbers) or something better than my current approach?

from that site, they can either use a masking tool with a canned CCN mask:

or generate CCNs with a test data generator (using Luhn), but again, external to Splunk:

Splunk by itself is only going to be able to mask based on regex replacement, but that doesn't necessarily mean any 16-digit string.

If you want to fully run the Luhn algorithm, you'd need to be using a scripted input to Splunk, or have some external form of pre-processing.

Thanks, I'm using the info from the first link you mention but the 2nd won't work (completely) for me as I have to account for different and yet to be determined credit card companies. This is why I'm hoping for a solution that incorporates the Lunh Algorithm or a better approach.
